Adler number: pi,62
Translated headword: by wrestlings
Vetting Status: high
Meaning by stratagems. And Aristophanes [writes]: "by Phrynichus' wrestlings." For while he was a general the Athenians were defeated and many took offence at him on the basis that he had betrayed the war. But some say that this man was a comic poet, who introduced choruses which were moving and wrestling. He became a general, and during his tenure[1] many of the tragedians did wrong and lost their civic rights.
